Canyoning in Crete



Attention! The heavy rains of the last years have damaged many gorges and many paths have been destroyed so they are no longer accessible. You could inform us for such cases, so we update the listings in our website.
Tsoutsouras Gorge
(4 votes)

The canyon of Tsoutsouras is located in the east part of range Asterousia and at the area of Tsoutsouras. This is one of the many inaccessible canyons of the area, starting at position Sfakias and it's exit is located near the settlement, in Larinaki area, and at first glance it causes awe. The canyon, although it is quite short (1.5km), is an ideal place for training beginners in canyoning. This is a technical gorge, meaning that the only way to access it is by using canyoning ropes, as there are 12 descents (rappels), the largest of which is 30m high.

Most rappels are located near the exit of the gorge, where it deepens and rocks get amazing colors.During the spring, there is water and rappelling down the waterfalls is an amazing experience.
